Subject: 1979 the year of Jack Straws
this is a great find! lots of good playing on this. Aside from not remembering all the words their intentions were mighty and they rock this out. I'm convinced 1979 is the best year of Jack Straw, they were big on the emphasis!
thank you tapers, Charlie Miller and the Archive!

Subject: Another fine recording
Here's another tasty audience for those of you who love them. Mr. Moore captured it very well, and Sir Charlie Miller has added his talents to the recording. (There is a remaster of this CM remaster also available on IA. You can't go wrong either way.)

This show is incredibly mellow. (Even the audience is mellow, notwithstanding people yelling to Phil to "turn it up" (?!?) and demanding "Jack Straw!" and "Dark Star!" But then, it is Buffalo in January. Brr.) There are some comments throughout the various uploads which suggest the show is nothing special. Perhaps not. But I think it to be good. Just very mellow. Miracle and The Other One are about as aggressive as they get. Even Minglewood is pretty tame compared to how they could be known to tear it up.

Jerry's playing on El Paso is wonderful, though I'm not sure how many folks appreciate what the band could do with this old country tune. His finger-picking on Peggy-O is lovely, too. It and Stagger-Lee are very slow, but I think they work just fine in the context of this show. Bobby and Keith combine to make some great sounds on Loser! Estimated and Sugar Magnolia are both fun as well. I really like what Jerry does with his solo at the end of Sugar Magnolia. Don't expect much from this Dark Star. It's short and doesn't stray far from it's core structure. In fact, truth be told, it doesn't actually accomplish very much musically. Still, there it is in a very listenable show.

Donna, evidently, was not at this show. The downside to this is that Jerry sounds, at times, somewhat timid trying to provide backup vocals by himself. The (small) upside is that (eventually . . . like the reprise of The Other One) Phil starts to provide some vocals. Finally, as has been mentioned elsewhere, Keith can be somewhat, uh . . . absent.

All in all, a decent show, superbly recorded.

Subject: A Pearl in the Sludge
A man walked upon a river he had once known as a child. The water he had swum in just ten years ago had turned to sludge. Floating on top of the sludge were ten Pearls. He reached out to grab one.

Subject: Outstanding
Dunno why I have this 'cos normally I'm a strictly 'nothing after '77 man' and most often it's narrower than that - 71/72/73 - (though I make the odd exception like seeing them at Wembley in 1990!) but I found this in my collection so gave it a play.

Result: outstanding audience recording (hats off to Mr Moore rip) up there with the recent 'matrix' releases. It really is that good - if you didn't know, you wouldn't know!

Even I can't listen to 71/72/73 all the time - you need a break to keep things fresh, so give this a spin, you won't regret it, I promise.

Subject: Flac decode error - FIXED - Thanks
I have re-downloaded the files I had a problem with and they all decoded. I still think something These files where corrupted yesterday and this morning, but thankfully they work now. I have had an occasional bad download, but I have never downloaded the same file five times and got a decode error every time. Thanks to who ever fixed it.
Reviewer: SteveSw - - June 11, 2009
Subject: The source is fine
Turns out that the LMA is error-checked. When you upload, you upload an md5 file along with the flac files. the md5 file is a whole-file checksum. the lma checks the music against the whole file when the upload is done. so, there is no chance that the uploaded music is not "good" relative to the md5.

I just downloaded this source. It uncompresses fine. So I think the problem was in your download.

This is an astonishlingly good 1979 show, and a great recording. If you want to drill down, check out the post-drums music. But the show is largerly better than that. This is well worth your attention.
